Aircell today introduced a new Android-based smartphone and accompanying GoGo Biz Voice service that can be used aboard Aircell's GoGo-equipped planes. The device, called the Aircell Smartphone, has a large 3.8-inch display, Bluetooth, and headset jack. It allows GoGo Biz Voice subscribers to make phone calls from airplanes to ground-based numbers while planes are in flight. Aircell claims that its air-to-ground technology provides low latency and high quality voice calling. Aircell didn't provide too many details about the smartphone, but said that tis systems will be able to support several simultaneous voice calls to the ground in addition to internet browsing sessions. The service and device are going to launch late in 2011.

Not good

Just what we need at 35000. Business conversations galore. People fly to get away from technology. It's a break from reality that most business travelers enjoy, now were going to have to hear them blabbering......thanks Aircell.
Fly to get away from technology? That's nonsense!!! People fly to get from one part of the countryto the other, or one part of the worl to the other.
I hope that's a trolling comment.

You do realize that an airplane is probably the most technologically advanced "thing" that a normal consumer will get to experience in his lifetime. Basically they're literally surrounded by technology.

So no, ...

GOGO in-flight calling

How is this different than making calls with Goole while using broadband during a flight?
